Shopping in NY

Jump to last reply

I am looking for suggestions from fodorites on their favourite places to buy bags, shoes and accessories.

We only have a week in New York and with so much to see and do I only want to spend a very small part of that time in shops. I am not intending to go beserk but I cannot visit NY and NOT purchase something that I cannot buy back home. A new handbag or two, some shoes and some scarves or accessories would be wonderful. If anyone knows of a store for buying leather jackets at a reasonable price I would love to know.

My aim is to have a list of your recommendations and if any of them are very close to where we are walking/siteseeing in that neighbourhood then I might check them out if time allows. I have no intention of going out each day just to go shopping.

If all else fails which department store would you suggest for a quick visit?

I have champagne tastes........... but I only have a beer budget so visiting Prada etc wont be an option. I am sure they wouldnt like wiping up my drool as I browsed in their stores. Good quality but reasonable prices.

Staying in UWS but will be sightseeing all around Manhattan.

Any advice would be helpful.
